2019: Ndigbo to support Igbo-interest party, candidate — Nwodo

2019: Ndigbo to support Igbo-interest party, candidate — Nwodo
Chief John Nnia Nwodo


By Dennis Agbo & Kelechukwu Iruoma ENUGU—OHANAEZE Ndigbo has stated that the Igbo will support only political parties and candidates with the interest of Ndigbo in their agenda in the 2019 general elections.

President General of the body, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, said that their support will only go to a presidential candidate with manifest programme that would address the multifarious interests and challenges confronting Ndigbo in Nigeria. Nwodo spoke yesterday, at a reception organized by the Enugu Chapter of the group in his honour on arrival at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, after a trip to the United States of America, where he and his deputy  went to inaugurate the South Carolina chapter of Ohanaeze. Nwodo stressed that although the group was a non-political association, it would advise Ndigbo to vote for a candidate of the political party that has the best programmes for Ndigbo in 2019.

Nwodo also expressed anger at the deplorable state of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, saying that deliberate neglect of the airport, the only international airport in the zone, tallies with the obvious marginalization of the South East geo-political zone in the socio-political and economic development of the country, particularly after the civil war that ended in 1970.
